Super Simple (No Cost) Mason Jar Candles For Fall

Hope you had a nice weekend and did something worthwhile and fun!  
We worked on a couple of things this weekend and had some friends over on Saturday night. 
One of my projects was made for our Saturday evening get together. I was in need of a couple of candles for the basement patio. 

Last year I put together a couple of Mason jar candles for Spring using items I had around the house. I use plastic Mason jar screw on lids to keep the rain out, since these stay outside on the basement patio.

The ones I made last year were looking kind of tired and decided to put together two Fallish looking candles.
 I had all the items on hand and the candles are super easy and quick to put together. I'm sure you have plenty of things around your house to do the same.

Take a clean Mason jar (or any clean jar) and add sand.

Add some jute string...

...and a dried flower to the outside...

...and finally, a candle.
  Finished in just a couple of minutes.
Don't you just love cute, super simple projects that don't cost you anything?

I know I do!

  11. Hi Pam,

    My name is Jessamyn. I have been admiring your blog and your great DIY elegant style. I just moved to Charlotte from NYC and have been seeking out resources (stores and unique locations like the Sleepy Poet you posted about) where I could look for some unique finds and DIY materials, but I can't seem to find any here yet. Do you have any suggestions?


  12. Thanks for sharing at my party Pam. I noticed when I clicked over from the party it did not take me directly to your post. Not sure what happened.
